You are a risk taker indeed! I treat my MBP like a new born baby!

:) the paint just peels off, that's why I took the risk

But if it just peels off, then won't it start peeling off as you open and close it a lot and all that? Seems like it would just start looking junky after a short time.

brilliant idea! have you peeled off the paint to verify that it hasn't stuck to the surface? My wife and I have identical macbooks for work and we've gotten them switched up before. I want to try this asap!

Did you need to cut the paint around the logo or anything like that? What kind of tool did you use to peel off the logo paint?

you can use your fingernails or a blunt pencil

Hi,

Since this is a peel able paint you don't have to worry about masking the logo. The logo is slightly indented and the plasti dip creates a separate layer which you can easily rip off. But make sure you peel it off before it drys fully
